#24 Carlos Fortuna
Signed: As an international free agent in 2007
Birthplace: La Romana, Domincan Republic
Carlos Fortuna is another player that is a part of the Royals continued progress in the Latin American market. Fortuna's best current asset is his 96 mph fastball, but other than that he doesn't have much except for raw ability. Fortuna also has a curveball and change up that have shown potential, but like most teenage pitchers the stuff is raw. Fortuna makes this list soley because of his velocity and young age. IF he can begin to refine his stuff and gain some control, he has the potential to shoot up this list a yar from now. I expect Fortuna to begin the season in extended Spring Training and then be assigned to Burlington, IA.
